If you’re one of those people that can’t function properly without an energy drink, then you need to stop doing that immediately!
Energy drinks contain tons of sugar, that not only makes you fat, but it puts you at risk of high blood pressure as well. Also, these drinks are loaded with caffeine, which can cause serious heart problems.
The energy drinks are gaining popularity because of the “benefits” written on their labels, such as:
- Increase metabolism
- Increase energy
- Increase concentration
- Increase wakefulness
Shortly after you drink it, you will feel awake and energized, indeed. But after some time, your energy will suddenly drop and you will feel tired and lethargic. That will make you reach for another drink, repeating the process over and over again and drastically increasing the risk of heart attack and brain stroke.
Who should avoid energy drinks no matter what:
- Pregnant or lactating women
- People who are sensitive to caffeine
- If you are suffering from anxiety
- If you are suffering from high stress levels
- If you are suffering from chronic fatigue
- If you have high blood pressure
- Any disorder with blood clotting
Mixing alcohol with energy drinks can be life threatening
Energy drinks are a stimulant, while alcohol is a depressant. Your body is getting damaged even when you’re drinking them separately, so can you imagine what drinking both of them at the same time does to your heart?
This dangerous combination can cause a deadly arrhythmia, heart attack or heart failure. So, take care of your health and don’t mix energy drinks with alcohol!
